The cycle of lectures by Irina Chmyreva «Czech Photography» covers the entire XX century. Photographic modernism and «new materiality», the formation of a documentary photograph in socialist Czechoslovakia and modern Czech photographic schools - these issues will be discussed at the July meetings at the Photographic Center.

The names of Evgen Viskovsky, Frantisek Drtikol, Rudolf Kopits, Yaroslav Rossler, Josef Sudek, Jaromir Funke are classics of the Czech and world history of photography of the first third of the twentieth century. The most fruitful period for each of these authors is two decades between the two World Wars. This period in the history of Czech photography, the most characteristic directions in its development, keynotes are devoted to the lecture.
July 20 at 19:00 , within the educational program timed to coincide with the exhibition, a lecture «Victor Kolar. Czech School of Documentary Photography 1960-1990-ies. « Victor Kolar, the hero of the July program of the Lumiere Brotherhood Center, is one of the most striking and characteristic figures of the Czech photography of the second half of the 20th century. But the conversation about him will be incomplete unless we talk about the formation of a documentary photograph in Czechoslovakia / the Czech Republic in the 1960s-1990s, in which, alongside Kolar, there are names such as Jinjdrich Streit, Eva Fuka and others.
On July 27 at 19:00 , within the educational program timed to coincide with the exhibition, a lecture «Photographic Education in the Czech Republic 1990-2010» will be held. Known for its photographic schools with traditions that go back to the great names of the founding fathers, the Czech Republic has become a crucible, in which a new photo of Central Europe is born. Young and talented authors from different countries choose the Czech Republic as a place of their education, because the names of such schools as FAMU and the University in Opava have become a sign for those who are looking for a platform for obtaining in-depth knowledge in different areas of photography, for dialogue with famous masters, for working out own style.
